Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
This ample white wine from Puglia features soft fruit balanced with structured tannins to make it a great foil for sauteed broccoli rabe or roasted eggplant.
Central Puglia is a well-off seaside area (the heel of Italy's boot) that has a long tradition of viticultural activity; albeit most of it appropriately infamous. Historically known as producing table-wine (or worse) level juice, its varieties can occasionally rise above the mediocre and make excellent value-oriented wines of character.
